Don’t give in to Peer Pressure

Posted on: June 27, 2010

                                
           It is so easy to give in to peer pressure. But in
           order to assert yourselves, you must be sure to let
           others know which lines they can cross and which
           the can’t when dealing with you.
          
           Peer pressure is difficult to overcome sometimes.
           This is especially the case if you are a bit of an
           ‘outsider’. If you are, you don’t feel much comradery
           with your peers. They seem to be off on their own
           and you seem to be very much on your own.
          
           One of the main reasons why you give in to peer
           pressure is because you want to belong. In other
           words, you don’t feel self-assured enough to stand
           up on your own and to put your own stamp of approval
           on experiences. That can really hurt you over time
           and it can also force you into experiences that you
           wouldn’t necessary want to get yourselves into.
          
           For instance, did you know that some girls take
           drugs, get involved in sex at too early an age, start
           drinking or smoking because they want to belong
           with a group of individuals?
          
           So, girls, don’t every be SO desperate. Once
           you’re pressured into these activities, you may have
           a difficult time to shake it. Don’t allow yourself to
           get so desperate.
